Level 2 History

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Morley

Course Description - If you’ve ever wondered what shaped our world to date, then it’s time to let History cure that curiosity! We’ll begin by uncovering what really happened during the Waikato Wars of 1863 – 1864, then move on to look at Apartheid in South Africa, and New Zealand’s reaction to it.

Possible Activities - You’ll tackle two internals in creative formats that could include a web page, TV broadcast, secret agent report or a time capsule. You must be prepared to read real library books and study historical footage and documentaries. You’ll then get intensive teaching, practice and ample preparation time to give you the best possible grade in one or two externals.

Course Endorsement Available: YES
